Can anyone tell me if there is a file that links POIs and the alert sound (ie the sounds linked to the speed cam POIs)? I've found that the links have to be recreated if the map is updated, or if the unit needs a full reset, and it's a bit of a PITA to go through each camera category and link it to a sound.

If I know which file holds the link at least I can back it up separately Cool

Thanks

MapSettings.cfg is the file.
It's inside the folder of the map you're using ("Western Europe" or whatever)

But be warned, copying it after a software update can cause constant re-boots.

There is a way round it that often works though.
Do a forum search for "MapSettings" for lots more mentions of this.

Thanks Andy. I think I've found the relevant post about creating a new Favourite using Home.
